China's Foreign Ministry argued that Wuhan Lab deserves a Nobel Prize for the COVID-19 research study.
When asked by the reporter to comment on accusations of falsifying the COVID-19 origins by some in the U.S., the Chinese spokesperson said that those people have chosen to ignore the WHO report and have been hyping up the "lab leak theory" and politicizing the origin-tracing issue. He continued by saying that the team in Wuhan should be awarded the Nobel Prize in medicine for their research on COVID-19 based on the analogy that other researchers have been awarded the Nobel prize for their contribution in discovering HIV and microbes.
